On the first morning of our first night out in our new 5th wheel, it was cold. I turned on the furnace to take off the chill. A couple of minutes in, the smoke detector began blaring! We jumped out of bed and out the door we went. The neighbors got a good show.
I poked my head in the trailer to see how high the flames were, only to smell that oily, dusty stink that a new furnace will give off. The smell gave it away and we returned to the trailer, took the battery out of the smoke detector and hid inside for awhile. The neighbors in nearby rigs never mentioned it, but I know they were whispering, "Newbies."
